Today, the boys from two neighboring schools gathered here to support their fellow students. The judge has already taken his place in the hall. So, the participants of today’s swim are Kolya Makhov, Serezha Kvitkin, Igor Neznamov and Sasha Nachalov. On Kolya – blue trunks and a cap, Sergei in red, Igor dressed in turquoise swimming trunks, and Sasha, we can easily distinguish in bright orange swimming trunks. Our swimmers have already prepared for the start and are waiting for the whistle of the coach. And now – “Start!” Kolya immediately broke away from the other swimmers and while leading. The very last one sails Sasha. Tribunes rustle and chant. Kolya slightly slowed down the pace and now ahead of Igor. How he sails! Beautiful, the movements are sharp! Apparently, the guy was training hard. But what is it – Sasha overtakes Sergei, Kolya and almost catches Igor. Maybe in the first half of the distance, he will save his strength. However, Igor is so easy not to catch up. Sergei is ahead of Kolya, now she and Sasha are swimming on a par with. The last floats Kolya. He was already exhausted. It’s a shame. That guys almost leveled off, let’s, faster, well, what are you! The audience is whistling.
Igor is ahead again. A little more, touched the side and turned back. Sergei leads, followed by Igor. Nick – the last. Here Sergei is noticeably ahead of Igor. Come on, gather strength! Again Igor jumped forward. A little more. Hooray! Igor is a champion. Tribunes exult. The second sailed by Sergei. And in the last seconds, Kolya overtakes Sasha.
Sasha came last. The guys climb the ladder from the pool and fall into the arms of their fans. And let not everyone is lucky today. The main thing is participation. And new victories will come with difficulty and patience.
